the weather this fall has been nearly perfect....sunshine,

blue skies, cloudless and crisp days, cooler nights.


despite the lack of has been wonderful.

we have done many projects with the such nice days.

some things are still blooming...

vibrant chartreuse looks pretty against a mostly brown backdrop.

the winding country road that we call home is just
perfection at this time of year.

giving the ducks some free~range time and they are loving it.

orange and blue complete each other in autumn.

it is my favourite colour combination this year.

this is a new purchase for the birds.
it was worth the wait and the sale price.

with the woodlands almost looks like they are on fire.

i have always been enamored with horses...our renny is no exception.

he is a real beauty.

when i whistle he comes running.

tonight i am giving him a wheelbarrow full of hay and he is whinnying at me.

he has started his winter coat and loves to roll in the mud to keep himself warm.

in the grey~blue sky...the moon is already showing on this perfect autumn
evening at dusk.
it is a beautiful sight between the bare branches and the fiery red leaves on trees.

happy days of autumn.

Lovely photos again Marmee. We too have had wonderful Autumn colour here.

So nice to see Renny and hear that he is doing well and I just love the ducks in their 'pond' :)

Happy November to you and yours.

Hi Marmee....our autumn colour this year has been breathtaking. I think it is the best I can remember.

Renee is extremely beautiful. I can understand your love of him. Our neighbour has horses....I often stop to talk to them.

Good to see the ducks. I have wondered how they are doing.
They all look well and happy.
